This is the smallest museum I've ever been in. Not a lot to look at. Wouldn't really recommend it unless you desperately wanted to go.
Tip: buy the sightseeing ticket on the Information Center. Without it is impossible to visit the houses/ temple. All of them (except the Trieu Chau Assembly Hall) require it. The Information Center staff is very rude. The "museum" is extremely poor. Two small rooms with very few relevant info or artifacts. It could be better. I do not recommend it.
This place is small and worn down. The museum is mostly old pictures, some artifacts and a cannon. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit here. At least the adjoining pagoda is nice.The only real point of interest for me were the old maps from Colonial times, but even these were dusty and poorly maintained
I think it would have been better if I were part of a tour group. It's filled with artifacts, but small placards that don't do it much justice. Other groups had tour guides, but I was reluctant to join because I didn't know if these were hired private guides and I would be imposing.
Good place to learn about Hoi An. Take about an hour to look through slowly all the stuff. There is even an early 19th century map by the British on the region!
4 floors, intro, geography, history, war, culture. It's a new building and not much advertised. Most of the displays are surprisingly well done; most, but not all. I'm not much interested in the war stuff, so I walked quickly thru that floor. I liked the 4th floor which is about Vietnamese culture the best.( fishing, agriculture, baskets, tribes...) The museum... More
Information was in English but the lighting was poor and some of the cases so dark that it was difficult to read. Not much to see but somehow quite interesting. Photos of old time and some artifacts as well as jugs (as coffins in ancient time) kept the musem one of places to see. If the light were better the... More
There is not too much to see in this small museum. Most interesting was history of Hoi An, pictures of the way it looked years ago and large jugs that were used as coffins in ancient times. Information was in English but the lighting was poor and some of the cases so dirty that at times it was difficult to... More
